Paul McCartney on Obama: 'Lay Off Him'
Fox News ^ | 6/2/10 | Fox Staff

Posted on 06/02/2010 7:52:03 AM PDT by nmh

(June 2) -- Paul McCartney is a man known for his words, usually when they're set to music. But he chose some special ones at the Library of Congress to praise President Barack Obama, before whom he will soon be performing: Let him be.

"I have to say I'm a big fan, he's a great guy," McCartney said at a Washington news conference Tuesday that was attended by politicians as well as journalists. "So lay off him, he's doing great."

...

Perhaps as an example of his global concerns, McCartney called the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico "a disgrace."

"I think most of us think it's a disgrace, and the fact that something like this can happen" is something that is "going to be addressed," he said.

-------------

Oh Paul ... BP is a BRITISH COMPANY!

BP has NOTHING to do with MEXICO!

British Petroleum (BP) is a UK company.

BP plc[2] is a British global energy company which is the third largest energy company and the fourth largest company in the world. As a multinational oil company ("oil major") BP is the UK's largest corporation, with its headquarters in St James's, City of Westminster, London.

I guess Paul McCartney’s off the list of greatest conservatives of the 20th century. Wait, this is the 21st. He can still be on it for the 20th century.

He's doing great? He's doing GREAT??? Paul, obviously either you don't read the newspaper or you're a complete moron, and in either case you're disqualified from commenting on current events.

They will in New England; where he is worshiped akin to a Kennedy.

Obama will hear of this request (if he didn't ask for Paul's help personally) and this means he is now, or soon will be, aware of his rapidly declining popularity.

Nice!

The Beatles made the movie HELP! as a tax dodge. They had to get out of England awhile as they were making so much Beatlemania money that their tax burden was high.

Screw million dollar Marxists.

Just a slight rearrangement of the word order and I would have agreed with Sir Paul: LAY HIM OFF.

I'd rather fire him outright, but I think we could compromise on a layoff...

The Beatles made the movie HELP! as a tax dodge. They had to get out of England awhile as they were making so much Beatlemania money that their tax burden was high.

Plus they specifically wrote "Tax Man" because england had a 95% marginal tax rate. "One part for you nineteen for me."

In addition, though Paul spoke a few years ago about how the rich could afford higher taxes, in the late 90's he had an elite team of lawyers arranging his dying wife's estate to avoid paying millions in taxes.

Hypocrisy that knows no bounds!

I had heard that the primary reason that John Lennon applied for permanent residency in this country was because of the onerous tax burden in the UK for people in his income range. So he was bad-mouthing the US government about Vietnam all the while trying like hell to get residency here so he could keep more of his money.

There is a veritable cottage industry in the UK assisting high-income celebrity types to relocate to more tax-friendly environs. That's why you have people like Roger Moore (Switzerland) and Mick Jagger (Jamaica) looking to bail out of the "motherland".

Yeah, tell me about it. Red Ted Kennedy fought against ending the inheritance tax. How much of HIS estate went to the IRS?

Sir Paul...

When I look at your home country -- an empire laid waste by bad ideas and incompetent leadership;
(bye-the-bye "multicuturalism" having provided excellent camouflage for the Islamicization of Londonistan...)

I am not surprised that England is circling the drain faster -- and lower than ever before....
---AND---
I am not surprised that you would admire and support The Arrogant Bastard -- who seeks only to destroy our way of life in similar fashion.

Play your fine music....
Stay out of politics...
Mind your own beeswax ---

Silly Beatle...

First, someone should tell Mr. McCarthy we kicked the meddling British out of the United States twice already.

Second, someone should remind Mr. McCarthy that what happens inside American politics is none of his freakin’ business. Frankly, I do not care if he likes Obama or not.

Third, someone should remind that little Liverpudlian that the order of words is important. We want to lay Obama off as soon as possible.
